The zero emission sport is a variation of land sailing focused around the blokart vehicle invented by Paul Beckett right here in New Zealand.
Owner and operator of Velocity karts Ian Brown recommends the blokart to almost anyone and boasts a near 100% customer satisfaction rate.
The blokarts are user-friendly and don't take too long to get used to and once you do you can easily reach speeds of 50 kph on the track.
Children as young as 7 are able to near-effortlessly operate the 3 wheeled vehicles that weigh in around 30 kilograms.
Brown has been working with local schools to allow more young people to experience the sport and is always keen to find corporate sponsors for students.
Velocity karts allows people to hire out blokarts, and drift karts are available to use on a separate winding circuit.
